Restorative Justice Trainings and Resources

Restorative Justice is a culture and set of practices that engage a community in building relationships and repairing harm through mutual, inclusive dialogue, understanding, and cooperation. A whole-school approach to Restorative Justice is more than a set of interventions aimed at students, but rather a way of being that touches all members of the school community and their relationships with each other.

As one DC educator shared, “One of my favorite parts is that Restorative Practices is so user-friendly. There is such a push on the academic piece nowadays and there is a disconnect between the educator and the youth. It is a problem that exists in so many of our schools. RP closes the distance between our educators, adults, and kids. This helps us keep connected as they are getting older. It’s a great tool. Not just reactive, but to build community.”

OSSE, is partnering with Restorative DC, a project of SchoolTalk Inc., and Youth Justice Inc. to offer monthly virtual trainings on Restorative Justice.
